Recording's a bit diced & sliced, missing a few beginnings of songs. Some scorchers in the first set, also some losers. The singing is kind of atrocious tonight, from everybody, not just Mrs G, but Garcia's playing like the Evil Kineval of guitar. In the second set, when the horns come out, it's pure bliss. This tour really raised the band's bar, in my opinion, & set the stage for the Grateful Dead that was to come in my time ('87 on) more than any other string of shows.

Donna gets a song!
WRS has some amazing leads from Jerry, which are ultimately ruined by the sounds of a goose being slaughtered.

An already good show made better with the addition of some free-ish skronk from a great little horn section!

Horns make this one
Let's face it, the Dead played nary a bad note in '73 and this show is no exception. What distinguishes this performance is the horns. The run from Truckin' through to Stella is just gorgeous. I just love the hint of r 'n b that the horns add to Truckin'.

Meester Martin Fiero
It's so nice to hear Martin stretch out during a Classic 1973 GD show. If you listen to any of the great horn players from the nola, bay area or ny funk scene, his sound is embedded into all of it.
great sound quality too; nice work - keep it coming!
Weather Report Suite; Let it Grow like being at a funky improv jazz session. Great listen. Standards are nice as well.
